AirBnB Wallpaper: The Guide

A decoration tool often overlooked by short-term rental homeowners, wallpaper provides many attractive features for properties listed on AirBnB, Booking, Agoda, and other similar services. With hundreds of comparable offers in the same price bracket, studies show that, on average, potential customers browse and open more than 20 listings before making a decision. With all the properties presented in the same format, in order to stand out a rental must show character, uniqueness and personality. All of these elements can easily be covered by creating an “instagrammable” feature wall with a graphic wallpaper acting as a work of art. Furthermore, wall décor designed for high-traffic areas is easy to clean and maintain. Unlike paint, wallpaper doesn't require frequent touch-ups or repainting, making it a more affordable proposition for rental properties in the long run.

Why should I decorate my short-term rental with wallpaper?

There are many advantages in opting to decorate your AirBnB rental with a quality wallpaper, as it adds a visual focal point that helps your property stand out amongst the competition and creates a cohesive and relaxing atmosphere for your guests.

Add character and personality at little cost

Furnishing a short-term rental is often a balancing act between the need to keep the budget at a reasonable level and to avoid filling each room with bland IKEA items that make your property look just like countless others. Rather than spending thousands on designer pieces, a more cost-effective solution is to opt for a striking graphic wall décor that can totally transform the look and feel of your rental by adding unique character to it.

Stand out amongst countless similar properties in your area

It’s not uncommon for owners of holiday apartments to struggle with achieving the necessary visibility for their listing amongst countless similar properties in the same price range and the same area. So how does one get noticed and picked by potential AirBnB guests? A designer wallpaper with a striking motif adds a unique and visually appealing element to the decor, making it stand out from other rental properties.

Create a cosy atmosphere for your guests to unwind and relax in

After a long day spent sightseeing and exploring a place that is unfamiliar to them, what your guests look forward the most is to retire to a comfortable place that feels welcoming and not sterile. After all, the desire for familiarity is the key behind the success of the AirBnB concept. The right wallpaper can help you create a warm atmosphere, making it feel like a home away from home for your guests.

Which wall décor should I choose for my AirBnB rental?

When it comes to choosing the right wallpaper for your holiday home, it is important to make sure that the model you pick can withstand wear and tear, comes with a washable surface and is easy to install and remove.

Choose a robust model that can withstand high traffic

When it comes to décor and maintenance, holiday rental owners face a difficult choice. It is essential that their place looks pristine and immaculate, as in the photos of their AirBnB listings, but the amount of traffic passing through their property requires frequent and costly renovations. A durable wallpaper can withstand the demands of multiple guests over time as its robust surface is designed to absorb minor “accidents” without getting damaged.

Make sure the surface of the wall décor can be cleaned easily

It’s no secret that even the most careful guest might leave a trace in the shape of stains from spilled drinks or dirt from a luggage trolley, to name just two examples. In rental homes, turnover time is often tight, and you need to be able to clean the walls quickly and easily between guests if necessary. Choose an easy-to-clean, washable wallpaper that can be wiped down with a damp cloth or sponge to remove any dirt or stains.

Make sure it can be removed easily

Although many wallpapers are very durable and can be enjoyed for years and years, you want to be able to replace it with ease to make sure the décor of your short-term rental is up to date with the most current interior design trends. Or perhaps you plan to experiment with a different design to see if it attracts more visitors. Simply pick a non-woven model that can be stripped off the wall without having to soak it beforehand.

Consider a peel-and-stick model

Steadily growing in popularity, self-adhesive wallpaper is a sought-after choice in holiday homes. Peel-and-stick wallpaper is very easy to install and remove, does not require any special tools or adhesives, and tends to be quite cost-effective, thus allowing holiday homeowners like you to easily update the look of your property without the need for professional help.

Make sure the model you pick conforms to fire and safety regulations

Guesthouses or holiday rentals, like any other property that welcomes paying guests, are subject to different fire and safety regulations than those applying to private homes. Make sure that you familiarise yourself with these rules before buying your wall décor and check whether the model you pick conforms to them. You can usually request a copy of the manufacturer’s fire certification from the seller.

Where should I install a wallpaper in my holiday rental?

A durable and eye-catching wall décor will help potential guests to differentiate you from competitors and reduce maintenance costs. It’s therefore recommended for hallways, bathrooms and bedrooms.

Hallways and corridor

The entrance to your property is your visiting card for your guests. This is the very first area they see when they arrive, and it will shape their impressions which will be reflected in their reviews. It’s also the place most easily damaged by luggage and bags. A wallpaper designed for high-traffic areas will withstand the friction for years to come while setting the tone for the style of the property.

Bedroom

Nothing is more important in a holiday rental than the bedrooms. This is where your guests will spend most of their time in the property, it’s the room they will notice the most and the place that will see most use. It’s vital that its décor looks pristine, and a durable and washable wallpaper will add personality while helping you avoid having to repaint it every few months.

Bathroom

Bathrooms are an excellent place to experiment with a bold and unusual wallpaper motif that makes a style statement. Traditionally a bit plain and dull, they are notoriously expensive to redecorate. Installing a funky wallpaper on a single wall, maybe behind the mirror, will create an eye-catching focal point that will be noticed by your guests and can be featured in the promotional images for your property to great effect.

Which wallpaper colours should I choose for my furnished rental?

There is a whole science about what the right colour can do for a hospitality location. We respond to colours at an emotional level and those on the walls of your property are one of the first things your guests will notice. Choosing between calming, pastel tones and neutral shades, or opting for a bold feature wall will achieve different goals.

Pastel colours

If most of the guests in your short-term rental tend to be families with children or couples, you should consider to actively target these groups. A great option is to go for a wallpaper model with soft pastel tones. Colours such as pastel green, light blue or powdery pink create a warm and inviting vibe that will feel more like a home than a sterile hotel and create the ideal backdrop for a relaxing family holiday.

Neutral shades

If you want to benefit from the advantages of robust wall décor in your holiday home rental but also wish to play it safe as you already have colourful furniture and furnishings, you can opt for models with neutral tonalities, like for example grey, beige, or off-white. These colours can also be easily paired with existing furniture and décor and are known to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere.

Bold accent colours

You have invested in the renovation of your guesthouse but feel that its qualities are getting lost in a sea of similar Agoda, AirBnB or Booking.com offers competing in your area? It might be time to add a jolt of energy to your place by creating a powerful feature wall with a striking graphic wallpaper. A bold colourful motif will add interest and personality to the property, making sure it gets noticed.

Calming tones

One feature that all guests pay attention to is whether the rental property they booked feels cosy and relaxing. After all, they are on holiday and wish to unwind and relax after a long day exploring. Opting for a wallpaper with patterns in light shades of blue or green will help create a tranquil atmosphere. Make sure you add a touch of nature with some potted plants to increase the homely feel.

Is it easy to install a wallpaper in my holiday rental?

A common worry when considering decorating with wallpaper is how difficult it will be to install and remove it. Thankfully, non-woven and peel-and-stick wall décor makes this process a breeze.

Easy “paste the wall” models

Modern wallpaper has come a long way since the days when all models required to adhere to precise soaking times and more often than not, an experienced professional was needed to achieve the best results. If you are concerned that wallpapering might be beyond your DIY skills, choose the non-woven variety. Non-woven wallpaper can be placed in a dry state on the pre-pasted wall, making installation and removal uncomplicated and less labour-intensive.

The advantages of peelable wall décor

An even easier way to benefit from the many advantages provided by wallpaper is to choose a peel-and-stick model that doesn’t require having to bother with wallpapering paste or most of the tools required to put up traditional models. This variety of wall décor looks like standard wallpaper, but it comes with a self-adhesive backing. This means that the pre-cut strips just need to be placed in position and will instantly adhere to the wall. If you are not happy with the result, you can just peel it off and reposition it again and again.

What are the DOs and DON’Ts of using wallpaper in short-term rental properties?

Like for everything in life, there are of course pros and cons when decorating with wallpaper. Here are a couple of tips to make sure you start on the right foot.

Do make an impression

Modern graphic wallpapers are available in an incredible variety of motifs and patterns that can transform an anonymous abode into a unique and memorable location brimming with personality and charm. Take full advantage of this cost-effective tool to create a feature wall that will have an immediate impact on the visitors. Be bold and use this décor as a contemporary work of art.

Don’t pick a model with a delicate surface

If you aim to create an “instagrammable” feature wall that will impress visitors browsing your AirBnB or Booking.com page, it’s easy to be tempted by models with a special surface which creates mesmerising effects on the wall. While glass bead, crinkle or metallic models are undoubtedly great as visual attraction points, they are also quite delicate and unlikely to survive the many visitors of a holiday home unblemished.

Do choose a wallpaper with a washable surface

It’s in the nature of rentals: guests come and go, with plenty of luggage, a busy schedule, and perhaps not always enough care for the apartment they are staying at. Dirt, smudges and the occasional stain are unavoidable. And that’s exactly why it’s important to pick a wallpaper with a washable surface that can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge, saving you time and effort.

Don’t go overboard

With so many options and amazing models available on the market it is easy to overdo it and start covering all the walls of your holiday home rental with wallpaper. This can be potentially overwhelming for your guests when they come back after a long sight-seeing day, especially if you opt for large graphic patterns. The alternative? Opt for a feature wall to add visual interest to each room.
